Over the coming months, the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area will be putting in place updated trail maps that more accurately show visitors the extensive trail system that exists right in their own backyards.
Through the cooperation of volunteers, Student Conservation Association (SCA) interns, and Park employees, four maps made their debut on the park’s website at the beginning of the month.
Did You Know?
All Trout have a protective membrane or "slime coat" that covers their scales and is their first line of defense against infection and disease. Damage to this coating can severely hurt the fish. Wetting your hands or limiting contact with the fish increases the likelihood that the fish will survive.
